It's a party in the USA, y'all.
At least it was on Dancing With the Stars. Americana was the theme this week, and while Hines Ward and Kym Johnson boogied to the top of the leaderboard, the Karate Kid and his partner took a dive to the bottom. Also hanging out near last place tonight was Petra Nemcova, and she's now feeling the warning bells starting to go off.
Plus, how did John Travolta come to help out Kirstie Alley?
Good old Travolta came to save the day for Kirstie and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and it paid off!
"John called us and said that he wanted to help because I think he heard me say that I was worried because it happened twice in a row," Kirstie tells us. "And he said: 'It's not gonna happen again.' And he's been so nice, and he loves Maks! [John] honestly thinks he's the best thing since him!"
Maks, in all his humble glory, confirmed this statement. "He literally said, 'I think you're the best thing to happen to dance since me.' Thank you, John!"
Meanwhile, Petra is getting nervous about elimination night, telling fans: "We need lots of support and voting!" The model-dancer also admitted she messed up, but partner Dmitry Chaplin insists he didn't even notice. "Honestly, when I was dancing I felt good. I felt a little slip, but I didn't feel any big mess up," he told the bummed-out Petra. "You kept with the timing and the speed, and that's what I was looking for."
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson were positively giddy (and flirty with each other) while talking about their big scores, despite feeling less than ready. "We were so nervous about this one. It was the first slow dance," Kym tells us. Hines quickly jumped in to gush about his partner. "She inspired me and she motivated me to dance my tail off," he says. Then the interview took a turn for the awkward when Hines joked he tried to "tongue her" during the dance and then revealed hat his lady that was a distraction. "She can't keep wearing that dress. I'll tell you that," he tells us.
Finally, Chelsea Kane was more than happy with their performance tonight, mostly due to the fact that they seem to be consistently at the top. "Every dance has been so different for us as far as the themes, and whether it's going to break all the rules. And we're scared, because we're breaking all the rules or it's super traditional...we're always changing it up," the Disney starlet says to us. "It's nice to see that it still tends to pay off once in a while."
And what of the swearing package that DWTS ran during the show? Chelsea brushed it off, saying: "I don't even remember what I said. I just reacted in my usual 22-year-old way."
What did you all think of tonight's performances? Do you think Petra danced her last dance? And who else is feeling the heat between Hines and Kym?
